PaperArtsy & Demoing!
Hey! Yes, it’s definitely me. No, it’s something rather different. A little while back on Twitter the lovely Leandra Franich asked for volunteers to play 3Up Patwits. Not having a clue what it was but always up for something new, I volunteered, little realising it would end up being rather special!
A week or two later a larger than expected parcel arrived containing 2 stamp sets, some tiny tags, twine, a substrate, some buttons, chipboard type shapes, smoothy stamping card & a colour scheme. Here are the sets
The Challenge: I covered the substrate by using a white stain and leaving some of the colour showing through. I used the dauber to create the circular pattern. Using the ephemera buttons, I painted them with white stain & then used PaperArtsy paints over the stamps & stamped over the buttons.
I created a notebook cover, stamped with white pigment ink for the leaves & then kiss stamped onto the text stamps. I heat embossed the flower and sewed contrasting threads into it. I used some hole reinforcers to paint across and swiped the paint across them to give texture. I used the buttons to act as the closures with twine.
I have been amazed this week at all the different projects. Mine is up on the blog with some other amazing projects here
What I have changed my mind about is the box I placed PaperArtsy in. As far as I was concerned it was arty and painty and that was that. However their images will suit EVERYBODY. The recent JoFy range are great for CAS lovers like me and if you check further back on the blog this week you’ll see a whole host of surprising stamp sets.
I hope this might make you pop over to PaperArtsy
